  1. 1. ASIA’S LAnDMArK reTAIL BUSIneSS evenT Second edition - 2010 The definitive, proven platform to reach and influence the world’s largest and fastest growing retail market
  2. 2. June 2009 saw the launch of retail Asia expo & Congress in Hong Kong. The event comprised The Retail Technology Expo and The THe ASIA pACIFIC reTAIL MArKeT Retail Design & In-Store Marketing Expo as co-located shows together with The Retail Asia Congress. ALL involved – visitors and - THE WORLD’S MOST EXCITING! exhibitors – declared it was a complete success. It returns in June 2010 much bigger than before. Nearly all of the launch exhibitors have rebooked their booths, most with significantly larger sizes! Here’s why it was such an exceptional hit: Retail Asia Expo & Congress was the first professionally organised business exhibition for the Asia Pacific’s retail sector which is the world’s largest and fastest growing. Most international retail brands are finding their domestic markets to offer limited growth prospects or are in decline. Therefore they look to Asia and China in particular for expansion. The location was perfect: Hong Kong is rightly seen as the retail capital of Asia where diversity and quality of the shops are a match for anywhere else in the world. It is a substantial and sophisticated market in its own right. The geographical proximity of Hong Kong to China, with a population of nearly 1.3 billion, means it is also on the doorstep of the largest consumer market in the world. And being in the centre of the Asia Pacific region means its catchment area includes most of the retail markets with the greatest growth potential for the next five years. The region is highly competitive and retailers have to be more innovative than anywhere else to succeed. They must excel in in-store design and embrace the latest high-technology systems to satisfy their customer needs. These vital aspects are addressed by the two core elements of the show - shop design and retail technology.
